Annette excels at one of the hardest jobs in any organization, persuading a multitude of individuals to help with things for which they are not responsible. The result was a world class training program, Liquibase University. This built-from-scratch program literally helped increase Liquibase’s engagement with its community by two orders of magnitude. In a period of roughly 18 months Liquibase went from talking to a few dozen customers, to 3000+ students, which in turn helped drive a six-fold increase in customer count. Most importantly, Annette did this autonomously, with limited guidance other than building a compelling and engaging set up courses. She quickly learned the fundamentals of Liquibase’s complex technology, built a framework, and then solicited input and reviews from multiple functions to develop, test and maintain the widely-praised program. She is a pleasure to have as a colleague and simply one of the best in her field! – Dion Cornett, former CEO of Liquibase Inc.
